July 29, 2010 – The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS)
Council Inc. will hold its annual International Auto Glass Safety
Conference October 27-28 in suburban Chicago this year. The event is
being moved so it can be held in conjunction with an AGRSS Consumer
Awareness Program (CAP), both of which will be held at the Drury Lane
Conference Center in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.

The AGRSS CAP brings together local officials, community members and insurance
company representatives to learn about the importance of proper windshield installations done in accordance with the AGRSS Standard.
 
“This is a unique opportunity for everyone interested in auto glass safety to attend both the conference and the CAP,” says AGRSS Council Inc. president Debra Levy. “Attendees at the conference can stay for the Consumer Awareness Program on the second day at no additional charge. They can see what’s involved with a CAP and evaluate whether or not they’d like to bring one to their community.” AGRSS will not hold its meeting during NACE this year.
 
Hotel rooms are available adjacent to the Drury Lane Conference Center at the Hilton Garden Suites, Oakbrook Terrace. Rates are $129 per night, plus tax. Reservations can be made by calling 800-HILTONS; be sure to mention you are with the AGRSS Conference. The deadline for reserving a room at the discounted rate is Monday, October 4, 2010.
 
The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) Council Inc. is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the safe replacement of auto glass. AGRSS was founded and is supported by companies in the auto glass replacement industry that keep safe installation as their primary goal. The Council is also accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) – a standard development organization – and has developed North America’s only auto glass replacement standard, the AGRSS Standard (ANSI/AGRSS 002-2002). The AGRSS Standard addresses procedures, education and product performance for the proper replacement of auto glass.
 
For more information, contact Wendy Jozwiak at 540/720-5584, ext. 131. The AGRSS Conference website, available on www.agrss.org , is expected to be live by mid-August.
